There’s a chance the WWE might see a welcomed increase in the Monday Night Raw ratings next week, with Bill Goldberg coming to Denver, Colorado to answer Paul Heyman’s challenge.
It looks as if Brock Lesnar vs. Goldberg is all but confirmed for the Survivor Series pay-per-view, so they can hype up the WWE 2K17 video game, as well as the fact that Goldberg is the one blip on an incredible record that Lesnar boasts.
Their one and only encounter took place back at WrestleMania XX when both men were on their way out.

Goldberg was the victor, but Vince McMahon had the last laugh when he gave both men a literal middle finger, courtesy of the special referee Stone Cold Steve Austin hitting a Stunner on both of them on their way out.
Now the situation is different, both men have aged yet Lesnar has proven to be just as dominant.

However, despite a lot of interest going into this feud to see when things do kick off, Goldberg and The Beast Incarnate won’t be coming face to face for another month.
FACE TO FACE
According to RingSideNews.com, both men will be splitting appearances on Raw over the coming weeks. This is how the WWE will be hyping up the Survivor Series match next month.
As we know, Goldberg will be in Denver on October 17 to come face to face with Heyman, and it’s expected that he’ll announce Lesnar is indeed next.
October 24 will be an interesting episode, and a correct decision by the company as well.
Raw will emanate from Minneapolis, Minnesota and it’s safe to say Goldberg wouldn’t be as welcomed there, so that night will be given to Lesnar to address the crowd and the situation.
Goldberg will make another appearance on October 31 in Hartford, Connecticut before the two finally meet on November 14 in Buffalo, New York.
This will be the final time the two men interact before we head to the Air Canada Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada which is another place where Goldberg receives mostly negative reactions.
While this may frustrate the fans who hoped to see them soon, it’s a smart move by the WWE to keep the fans on the edge of their seats and keep them tuning in on a weekly basis.
